5/15/13 - Indians @ Phillies Gameday Thread

Recommended Posts

I just pulled off a two-team deal but like an idiot, I processed it today instead of waiting a few hours for this game to start. Now I miss Hamels' start, who I traded to my weekly opponent (although thankfully as it's 1:30am here down under, I don't think he will be awake to change his lineup - a small saving grave, but I cheated myself of a start).

Pretty big game for the Indians, Tigers are about to sweep the Astros, need to keep the momentum going. Maybe Kluber will surprise us.

hey holybrowns,

whats the deal with playing time with Chisenhall down? Who benefits the most, Raburn, Aviles or Giambi? the situation is a bit fuzzy right now....

Playing Reynolds at third allows both Raburn and Giambi to get in the lineup more, Aviles will strictly platoon with Reynolds at third. I think Giambi will benefit the most.

Would be nice if Francona wasn't a total idiot. No excuse on this planet why you lead off Stubbs.

Starting to get pretty annoyed myself, I defended him once, never again.

Cleveland bats are hurtin' right now.

Reynolds must've left about 8 dudes on base last night with some stellar infield flies

2 on 2 outs for the Tribe, with Kluber up! Yay!

I forget how annoying National League rules are, tradition aside, are fans really entertained by a Hamels/Kluber matchup? Granted, Kluber just RIPPED one foul.

Oh my, Kluber is making me bite my tongue, almost hit a double.

Hamels already at 51 pitches, Tribe has fouled off 15 pitches.

Reynolds 2/10 against hamels. Those 2 hits are HR's. Thats the Reynolds i know. B)

You got me excited, I thought he hit a HR... geez

Kluber is actually looking pretty damn good so far. Hitting the corners, keep hitters off balance, 16 pitches through 1.2.

Yup. Moving in and out as well.

Kipnis 1 out double.

Once he started staying on the ball and stopped trying to pull everything, has really made a big difference for him.
